Fabulous apartment, conveniently located to explore the lovely town of Penzance, but in a quiet area overlooking the bay.
Extremely pleased we found it and will definitely book again!

“Brilliant all round!”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Working away with a colleague so an en suite each was perfect; not to mention the washer dryer! Fab views, very comfortable apartment in pretty historic street with quirky pubs nearby.
Wifi and parking too.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Beautiful apartment, everything you wish for. Wonderful views of the harbour and marina. Very good base for all our daily trips. We wished was available for New Year to come again.
We will return. Thank you for having us in your home.

“Perfect location & modern, spacious apartment”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Loved our stay at The Bell Tower. Great views out over Penzance harbour and St Michael's Mount in the distance. Perfect location to explore the town with some quirky but welcoming pubs within easy reach. The apartment has been renovated to a very high standard and blends the old and new sympathetically. If we had one criticism it would be that its clear time & money have been invested reaching this standard but the showers could do with pumps to give you that luxury "drenching" experience (I know that's a picky comment!). Broadband has recently been installed and its adequate for browsing but you wont be able to upload all the pics you take on your days out, not that that's a huge concern. All in all a highly recommended location!

“Modern Apartment with Glorious Panoramic Views”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

It is always a treat after a long drive to park up outside an apartment with views of the sea. This is exactly what greeted us when we arrived at the Bell Tower. The climb up the short spiral staircase to the apartment has a very 'back in time' feel. The apartment is a total contrast with its very modern interior. The main highlight of the apartment is the large windows that provide a glorious panorama of Penzance bay. It was all too tempting to relax on the sofas and enjoy the views, rather than take advantage of one of the other main benefits of this apartment, namely its location. The apartment is ideally situated in short walking distance of the amenities of central Penzance as well as it being a well situated base for exploring the delights of the surrounding area.

“Arrival annoyance did not spoil our holiday.”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Arrived on time to pick up key at nearby pub as in owner's email. No key. Friendly pub. We were tired after journey from London.
Rang owner who called the housekeeper, who rang us to say she would be there in 40 minutes. Waited in pub! Housekeeper arrived and let us in to drop our bags but flat hadn't been cleaned after last guests. A two hour wait seeing the sights of Penzance. Eventually took possession three hours late. No apology from anyone.
After that things improved and we enjoyed the rest of our four night stay. Terrific flat, super views, excellent situation. Recommend Blacks up the road for a great meal and friendly service. Plus the pub, Admiral Benbow.

“Lovely place to stay ”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The Bell Tower is a lovely place to stay in Penzance. With amazing views across St Michael's bay and in a great location for Central Penzance's amenities. The Bell tower is a clean comfortable place to stay with all mod con's for a self catering stay. Booking was easy and owners are really friendly and accommodating. Hoping to return next year.
